It's a grey, rainy day here in Maine, but that is great news for my garden. I have tulips and daffodils getting ready to bloom, lupines and primroses spreading like crazy, and my crab apple tree is covered with tiny little buds just waiting to burst. A nice May shower will do them all good!
On dreary spring days, I love to head over and peruse the inexhaustible gardening tips at Fine Gardening. Here are a few little gems I stumbled upon this morning:
- How to Buy the Best Plants: this 5 minute video is well worth watching before you head out to buy plants this year
- Celebrate Spring: fill your pots with colorful plants that don't mind cool weather
- Hummingbird Favorites: find out what all the buzz is about by planting these colorful perennials
- Mother's Day Gardening Gift Guide
